O factura,
O creature of God which is human,
In greatest sanctity created,
When sacred divinity
In humility heaven penetrated.

O quam magna
O what great compassion allows
In earthly mire such clarity,

O factura,
O creature of God which is human,
In greatest sanctity created,
O factura,
That angel ministers of God
Might see God
In humanity.
O factura,
O quam magna
